What is with all the rain? Seriously.
Noah called, he wants people to stop stealing his gig.
Rain is liquid water in the form of droplets that have condensed from atmospheric water vapor and then precipitated—that is, become heavy enough to fall under gravity.
That dang gravity.
More importantly, rain is bad for shoes. It’s fine for rain boots, but it’s May already. I had fun wearing my rain boots in April.
April, the traditional month for rain and rain boots; May, the traditional month for wearing cute spring shoes.
On average, we get 256 inches of rain in North America every year. I’m pretty sure we’ve gotten 200 of those inches in the last week and a half. I have webbing growing in between my toes. And I’m over it.
But I decided to go looking for the proverbial silver lining.
On Venus, rain is made out of sulfuric acid. That would be worse than our endless rain made out of water.
It could be snow. That would be worse. Unless we had snow days. (Silver lining! Look for the silver lining! Right. Snow would be worse.)
When it rains cats and dogs, it doesn’t literally rain cats and dogs. That would be worse.
The maximum speed of a falling rain drop ranges from 18 to 22 miles per hour. If they weren’t shaped like raindrops, they might have less friction, fall faster, and impale people. That would be worse.
Rain lands in droplets. An inch of rain on an acre of land weighs approximately 226,000 pounds. That would hurt if it feel all at once.
Rain isn’t purple. That would be bad for shoes, and clothes, and hair. But it would be pretty.
We have umbrellas and rain boots. And we don’t melt.
I can live with the rain.
